I still have to go with Manhattan; especially as the 9/11 "jitters" fade with time.

I love New York's endless varieties of old and new skyscrapers and it will only get better with the new supertall towers. New York also has beautiful bridges and giant statues as part of its skyline. San Fran would be next on my list because of the beautiful Golden Gate and the new skyscrapers that will grace it's already picturesque skyline. Chicago is my next favorite, with a very balanced skyline and vintage skyscrapers. Chicago's skyline is hurt by the fact that some buldings are hidden by ugly newer condos.

New York will continue to be the best skyline in the future and will continue to grow. But the other major urban cities will experience huge skyline growth. I predict Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and San Francisco will grow substantially and dominate all other cities in the US. The south will stall in skyline growth as many companies will opt for office parks in suburban settings in those areas.

You're the idiot. Yes Chicago created the skyscraper but Chicago barely had a skyline as the years went by. NYC grew its skyline fast and better than Chicago. Your trolling. You posted negative remarks against NYC in another thread. Second people around the world call NYC better than Chicago.

Extra S.F. skyscrapers a mixed blessing

SF is definately going to be in the mix. It will never be as massive or as tall as NYC or Chicago, but has the benefit of bridges, hills, mountains, bay, ocean, islands, essentially geography and topography that can't be beat.

LA, PHILLY, Vegas, and Miami will come up as well but won't break top 3 status like NYC, Chicago, and SF.

1) Office parks in suburban settings doesn't represent a new phenomenon.

2) Lots of highrise office buildings are to be found in these suburban office parks, which add additional skylines or facilitate the connection of "edge city" skylines. That trend will continue.

3) There will still be highrises built in the cores of Southern cities.

In short, this is not a prediction; this has been the reality for the past, oh, 40 or 50 years--all except the "stalling in skyline growth" part.
